About the course

Public sector managers face growing pressures from increasing demands, conflicting priorities and limited resources. Government ministers and ordinary citizens demand ever higher quality of service delivery, but budgets remain constrained. Public sector managers have to do more with the same or fewer resources. At the same some, they face increased scrutiny from parliamentarians, citizens, civil society and journalists. Public sector managers need to develop a wide range of skills aside from their technical expertise including financial management, developing teams and personal interaction and communicating with a wide range of stakeholders.
